NEWS (November 2015):
   MAJOR UPDATE OF THE DATABASE: ~900 additional isolates, including 239 with complete genomes.
   MLST sequences and information from 19 brazilian B. cereus and B. thuringiensis isolates kindly provided by Dr. Adriana M. Vivoni, Oswaldo Cruz Institute (IOC-FIOCRUZ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
   MLST sequences and information from the chinese rice isolate B. cereus 192 kindly submitted by Dr. Yang Yong, Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Zhejiang CDC), Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.
   Now including data from four recently defined species that may be novel members of the B. cereus group: B. toyonensis (Jimenez et al. 2013), B. gaemokensis (Jung et al. 2010), B. manliponensis (Jung et al. 2011), and B. bingmayongensis (Liu et al. 2014).

NEWS (March 2012):
   Integration of 84 additional isolates, including 7 with complete genomes, and 2 novel isolates belonging to the B. cytotoxicus species recently described in Guinebretiere et al. 2012.

NEWS (April-July 2010):
   Isolates having conflicting typing data and/or phylogenetic positions are now removed from analyses.
   Now providing lists of MLST profiles (corresponding to the sequence types [STs]) for each of the 5 schemes as well as multi-scheme superprofiles.
   Now providing consistent across-method phylogenetic classification of the isolates based on the seven clusters defined by Guinebretiere et al. 2008.
   Now providing phylogenetic trees colored according to the main clusters of the B. cereus group population.
   Now providing the possibility to select and search isolates according to the phylogenetic cluster they belong to.
   Isolate information has been significantly updated.
   Now providing links to the Integrated Microbial Database, StrainInfo, for additional isolate identifiers, information, and links to database collections.
   Now providing display of phylogenetic trees in 2D hyperbolic space with the use of Treebolic software.
   Now providing phylogenetic trees in XML format and the new PhyloXML standard.

NEWS (August 2009):
   MLST data have now been combined with AFLP and MLEE typing data in the HyperCAT database.
   Now providing an integrative genetic and phylogenetic population snapshot combining supertree and supercluster data.
   Now providing superclusters of closely related strains sharing identical MLST profiles.
   Now providing ultra-fast supertree computations with the use of the TNT software. Computation times reduced from 2 days to about 5 hours!
   Now providing even more advanced phylogenetic tree viewing with the use of Archaeopteryx and ZGRViewer software.
